Decent show. But like so much of 78, nothing jumps out and grabs you; nothing jaw-dropping, though they play through this period with more rough edge and intense tenacity.
I like Donna. She adds a lot with harmonies on so much. Her only objectionable moments come when she does her Tarzan wail on Playing in the Band (not in this show) or her trippy "Oooooohh, Ahhhhhh" during Scarlet Begonias (again, not on this show). But that is not much to have to suffer. She is far less objectionable than Weir playing slide guitar. It was a failure of the band's "leaderless collective" style that allowed Weir to ruin many a song with the piercing screech of his incompetent slide playing. That is not being a "hater." That is simply an objective assessment of a guitar skill Weir never acheived. Oh, and he tortured us for years trying to learn on the job playing that slide. He never figured it out.
This is notable for the recording quality. Great job in the field by Glassburg. Folks need to appreciate that it was harder back in the day before the "taper's pit" to get high quality AUD recordings.

good recording of a good show
Glassberg does not dissapoint with his efforts. This AUD has a nice room sound and wide stereo effect. I like how the drums echo and Phil booms and thumps. Good performance from the band.

Great Recording, Decent Show
This is simply a great sounding AUD but the show itself is pretty standard fare with peaks that are few and far between. Nice jam out of Estimated and a very good Stella were the highlights for me. The most interesting part as far as I'm concerned is that you can distinctly hear Al Franken chatting in the audience between a few songs in the first set!
Donna detractors, beware! Not one of her best nights and her vocals are quite high in the mix. She is notably absent from most of the second set though.
Five for sound, three for performance.
